School Newsletter: Waddesdon Voice

“Welcome to our March edition of the Waddesdon Voice. As ever, the magazine showcases the richness and rewards that come from engaging in a range of experiences and from working with others.

I am particularly grateful to the students who have contributed articles about mental health and well-being. You will see that this is a theme which runs through this edition. Learning how to develop as rounded individuals who care for each other, as well as caring for ourselves, is one of the prime purposes of education. Do make sure that you read Oli’s thought-provoking article at the end of the magazine.”

– Mr Abbott, Headteacher

“Welcome to this term’s Voice which is another celebration of Waddesdon students’ engagement with, and reflections on, life in all its fullness. It demonstrates the rich lessons that come from grasping opportunities, getting involved and pushing yourself.

In the summer we said goodbye to Janet Bayly, who served as our school chaplain for 10 years. We are delighted that she will continue to join us for a Holy Communion and also welcome Phil White as our new chaplain. You can get to know him on page 4.

Finally, I would like to encourage all of our students to express their views by contributing to next term’s magazine. The new creative team behind this brilliant edition of the Voice are Mr Peck, Mr Kanachowski and Mr Scrivener.”

– Mr Abbott, Headteacher

This edition of the Waddesdon Voice is another celebration of the work of the whole school community, from Year 7 to Year 13. I am confident that you will find articles and pictures which will make you think and which will also make you smile. At the end of a busy and productive year, it is good to reflect on the richness of what Waddesdon offers and the distinctiveness of our ethos which characterises our school.
